Benton County Water Main Washes Out

LITTLE FLOCK (KFSM) — A main water line on Dixieland Road near Little Flock washed out in the heavy rains on Saturday morning (April 29).

The water line suffered a drop in pressure after washing away, said a Benton County Water District No. 1 official.

The department is aware of the problem and is working to find a solution to fix it as quickly as possible.

A boil order is in effect for about 250 customers who live on N. Dixieland Road. The boil order only effects customers in the Benton Water District No. 1 service area who live on Dixieland Road North of Rogers up to Little Flock Drive.

A water district official said they were working to find a temporary fix to reroute water from Rogers to an affected apartment complex that has about 200 residents.

However, more rain is in the forecast, which makes fixing the issue difficult.
